Firstly,people download their music nowadays because it is simply cheaper and more convenient sitting in front of the computer and waiting for songs to download on i tunes. It couldn't be more easier. Also the fact that there's YouTube people can listen to a never ending list of songs and music videos for free.I begin to ask myself is there actually any point for CD's anymore? Of course since I am for this argument my answer will naturally be no. When you have and i pod which can store hundreds of your favorite songs then whats the point of having a load of CD's clustered in heaps around your room?Technology is trying to make life easier for us in this context and impersonally I think we should embrace it and technology should keep trying to better itself for future generations.However the older generation are still quit fond of their CD's and their cassette tapes.These people probably have oceans of nostalgic memories about their first CD or tape which is nice but they have to understand that this is the 21st century now and for alot of people around the globe their world revolves around technology.Its better in my opinion having downloaded music on your i pod or mp 3 player as it gives you the freedom to listen to whatever genre of music you want at whatever volume (as long as it doesn't damage you ear drums too much). Also as for earphones and headphones for music, there is a numerous selection to choose from so your as comfortable and as relaxed as possibly listening to your songs.Even the radio,which is probably the most influential aspect for music,have developed app's and pod-casts so you can listen to your favorite radio station whenever and wherever you like,whether it be at home or on the go its very convenient.
To conclude,downloading music is so much more cheaper than CD's and since now we have entered a state of recession its more practible than going to the nearest music shop to buy the new CD of you favorite artist or band.Even at that sometimes the music shop wouldn't even have the CD your looking for and they'd have to order it in for you which can be a bit of a nuisance and pain.However if you opt to download the album then your almost guaranteed that i tunes would have it and you could then listen to the music VERY quickly.I know some people are stuck in their ways when it comes to this topic but I hope that I gave a bit of insight into my views and made you think about your own.
